Australia vs. South Africa | Match Prediction, Betting Tip & Odds
Rivals Australia and South Africa meet at Old Trafford this weekend, in what is the final round-robin match of the Cricket World Cup. The Aussies have already secured their place in the knockout phase of the competition, as they sit top of the standings following an impressive run of matches. Meanwhile, South Africa have nothing more than pride to play for, in what has been a disappointing tournament for them.
Initial Situation for the Game Australia vs. South Africa
Australia and South Africa will go head-to-head at Old Trafford on Saturday, with many fans hoping for fireworks as two of the biggest names in cricket meet. Australia are the firm favourites, having lost just one match in England so far, however it is South Africa who have had the better of things against their rivals of late. With a large number of bets are expected to be placed on the match, let’s take a closer look at the two teams, including their player availability and recent form, starting with Australia.
Australia come into this weekend’s match having won their last five World Cup matches, a run which includes impressive victories over host nation England and neighbours New Zealand. Captain Aaron Finch has lead from the front for the Aussies, having scored an impressive 504 runs during the tournament so far. However, fellow opener David Warner has outdone Finch, with the dangerous batsman having 516 runs to his name. Elsewhere, the bowling attack featuring Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins is likely to give South Africa nightmares, with the former having taken a massive 24 wickets so far.
South Africa Form
South Africa have been one of the biggest disappointments in the tournament, with the Proteas sitting in eight position in the standings, having only beaten Afghanistan and Sri Lanka so far. Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock are likely to be a threat for South Africa, however the duo are the only players in the team to have scored over 250 tournament runs.
Latest Team News
Having won three of their opening eight matches at the World Cup in England, Sri Lanka are now out of the running to finish inside the top four, with their inconsistency having been their biggest downfall. Meanwhile, India have already confirmed their place in the semi-finals, which could lead to the men in blue resting some of their leading players at Headingley this weekend.
It is South Africa who have had the better of things against Australia of late, with the Proteas having won seven of their last eight ODI matches against their great rivals. This run includes a 40-run success in Hobart back in November last year, which secured a 2-1 series victory for South Africa. However, Australia’s recent form suggests that they are the firm favourites this time around.
